Work Experience

Gippsland Southern Health Service (GSHS), incorporating the Leongatha and Korumburra Hospitals, has over many years offered work experience to students from the local area that are interested in a career in health. GSHS is able to offer the following placements, of 1 week to the following schools:


  • Mary Mackillop Catholic Regional College – 2 placements

  • Korumburra Secondary College – 2 placements

  • Leongatha Secondary College – 2 placements

  • Chairo Christian School – 1 placement

  • Mirboo North Secondary College – 1 placement

  • Foster Secondary College – 1 placement

  • Yarram Secondary College – 1 placement


Due to increased demand and requests for placements, the availability is limited to these placements and only one student at a time.


We request that all students seeking work experience at GSHS are recommended by their career coordinator/work experience coordinator from their school. Individual requests without confirmation from the school for placement will be referred back to the student’s school.
